Old friend,

It’s been a while, years, since we’ve said anything at all, so this may seem out of the blue.. or maybe not because I won’t even send it through.

There has been a revolution. I don’t know if you’ve heard? I’m sure you must have, wherever you are in the wo...

Where am I?
I’m floating on marching souls
And I must be dreaming.
The ground beneath us
Rejoices at the beat of their soles.
I can see them
Lo and behold
Lassoing a towering cross
And tugging at the bright side of the moon.
I can see them
A wave of blazing flags
They...

There’s a wound in you
That challenges us not to love
so we could love, regardless
There are people in you
That are intolerant and ignorant
So we learn to tolerate, regardless
There are ideas entrenched within you
That we should not stand close
When they kneel to a dif...

“But it’s normal”
She looked at me with ease.
———
“What do you mean?”, I answered.
———
“It’s normal, that when lovers part
they leave
And choose to never again
swim against the stream”
———
My eyes now a full circle,
draped in the light of a sunbeam.
“But by normal, wha...

I am tired
I am afraid
I don’t know what will happen.
After today
Wake up, make up
I’m thinking “seize the day”.
But the news is wretched
The office is empty
And it’s only Monday.
I am scared
I am derailed
What part of the day
remains to seize, anyway?
What part of thi...

I think I’ll leave too
Throw this suitcase out the door 
I think I’ll do that thing I always wanted
Go where I never have before 
Maybe I’ll do that Phd 
Decide to commit to the years
It’ll be hard at first
But I’ll write it out in tears 
Maybe I’ll leave for better th...

Have you ever experienced a heartbreaking loss of self? Like a complete detachment from that person you always loved to be?
Have you ever felt that in your efforts in retrieving that person, it only beckons further and slips away? Have you ever tried to express that but...

It seems uninteresting
Almost mundane
That two perfect halves of one soul were made
Made for a search unlikely to prevail
Made for “it just wasn’t the right time” kind of tale
“He was here too late”
“She knew it was bound to fail”
Made for an “almost” kind of love
How unlike...

Let me tell you a story
A story of a man
Who told tales
He’d hold up his head
Bring his chest forward
And close his eyes in vein
He’d fall in character
Like the flowers fall in may
He’d hold his words like wine
the lines they would stain
His Pauses were in motion
Like a deep sl...

Honey honey
What is it about your smile?
How come you’re always happy?
It must be a lie.
It cannot be, that every story
Simply ends fine.
How are you so lovely?
Locks like honey,
Even stars tangle in their light.
Tell me the truth
Show me the tears,
That hide in your wine.
Show m...
